Today YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of 89 West End Avenue in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. The project is being designed by Citiscape Architectural Consulting.
Progress on the second highest tower in the Hudson Yards mega-development has reached a milestone. 35 Hudson Yards has officially topped out at 1,009 feet. Now that it has reached that height, it is the ninth tallest structure in New York City and 19th tallest in the United States. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development. Next door, 30 Hudson Yards is tantalizingly close to topping out, but the milestone has not yet officially occurred.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 89 West End Avenue in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. The site is seven blocks away from the Brighton Beach subway station, serviced by the Q train, and end of the line for the B train. Daniel Estrin of Citiscape is behind the applications.
Manhattan Beach is a fairly quiet and affluent neighborhood, with plenty of single-family homes. However, there is a small area close to the border with Brighton Beach that has been zoned for larger projects, including 59 West End Avenue, where an existing structure will soon meet the wrecking ball for a new seven-story mixed-use building.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 179 West End Avenue, located on the western end of Manhattan Beach in southern Brooklyn. The new building will measure 11,140 square feet. It will contain 1,185 square feet of medical space and 1,187 square feet of office space on the ground floor, followed by eight residential units across the second through sixth floors, plus a penthouse level. The apartments should average 990 square feet apiece. Zarina Kindo’s Brooklyn-based ARCON Studio is the architect of record. The 2,643-square-foot plot is occupied by a single-story structure. Demolition permits have not been filed.
